There it goes, when i try to install the windows version of the game, an empty error window pops up and closes the installation. I think thats because it isnt compatible with windows me.
The same thing happens with King Quest 7 and Torin’s Passage.I tried to play this games in their Dos versions but after a while playing the sound crashes…
Is there some patch or any other solution to install this games properly in windows me?

(re: Problems running Leisure suit Larry 7 under Windows ME) I have no idea. Are you sure you are running the most recent version of Direct X? The first thing I would do would be to patch your operating system, and direct X up to the current level, and hope the problem goes away.
If that doesn’t work, try the support section on the Sierra site.
If even that doesn’t work, try google — maybe someone has a fix somewhere.
If after all that you are still stuck — you could consider an operating system upgrade….

(re: Problems running Leisure suit Larry 7 under Windows ME) I always use Windows ME, and LSL7, KQ7, and TP have never given me any problems… Try running the installation program in 256 color mode, and skip the tests the program offers to run.

i’ve played kq7 and torin’s passage in XP, if they run there they should work in ME.
definitely set your computer to 256 colors and 640×480 resolution before you start the game.
you might try the bulletin boards at sierra’s site, someone there may be able to help you.
you could also try installing the games using sierra’s Install & Update utility (this wound up on my machine with some program, i think it came with torin’s passage). it allows you to bypass the standard installer. or if this is what you have been doing, try clicking the setup.exe file on the game’s CD instead.

(re: Problems running Leisure suit Larry 7 under Windows ME) I’m sorry to be a “party spoiler”, but I think the messages like this, asking for technical assitance, do not belong in this forum…
There are many sites and newsgroups dedicated to solving problems like these. You should consult them before coming to this site.
I firmly believe that this site should be a site ABOUT Sierra, and as such we should talk about Sierra, and related material – but not about technical problems. I hate to see this forum becoming a technical assistance one.

(re: Problems running Leisure suit Larry 7 under Windows ME) I have created a new discussion section, “Bugs and Troubleshooting”, for discussions like this. I’m moving the appropriate messages to this section.
